    "Boy stands up for Old Glory"

    awesome story...we need more kids like this.

    Jeffrey Sahli noticed the faded, fraying American flag outside Evergreen Middle School soon after he started eighth grade last year.

    "I thought the flag wasn't being treated with flag etiquette. I thought I needed to do that," the 14-year-old said. "I wanted to serve my country and I thought, heck, I'll start right here."

    "Duty, Honor, God & Country"... I think that there is at least some of that in every man and woman who come here. God Bless America!

    The first rule of gunfighting should be to know when the gunfight starts - being the last one to get the news certainly won't put the odds in your favor.

    If there were we wouldn't be going down the crapper so fast. Good job kid!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Good on him!!!
    I also must applaud his parents, They must be doing their job in raising a fine young man!!

    Perhaps one of the Colorado US Senators will see this story and keep this young man in mind for an appointment to West Point in the future.
